gear oil?

hi im new to this forum I recently bought my first Scooby and love it its a full turbo replica apart from the engine, now im having some issues with the gearbox when the car warms up it crunches in reverse and 3rd only does this when its warmed up, iv been told that maybe the gear oil needs changing so im going to change it, iv heard that Castrol syntrax is the best when iv looked on Halfords site they don't seem to have it but there is a Castrol syntrans whats the difference any help would be great thanks

Re: gear oil?

has for as I can tell one is for limited slip diffs the other is not, it shouldn't matter as long as its rated 75w-90 for your car.
Only STI models have Limited Slip Diffs.

Im sure one of the experts on here will correct me if Im wrong. I have a UK turbo and it does not have a LSD.
